Testimonial for Ravae Sinclair, JD, CLC, PBD(NBPP), PCD(DONA)

Ravae was referred to me by my boss, who used Ravae twice. I had experienced a devastating miscarriage and was filled with ANXIETY! I kept putting off meeting with Ravae until I got further along in the pregnancy. From what I knew, doulas were birth coaches exclusively. I couldn't think about delivery when i was so concerned about fetal viability. Ravae explained to me that many people get a doula because of previous losses, so I engaged her early on in my pregnancy. I'm so glad that I did! I got lots of personalized support and information. Ravae is so personable that you feel like you've known her forever. She's very open-minded. I'm a single mother, with an unconventional paternal situation. She took everything in stride.

So, while i had a completely uneventful, geriatric, high risk pregnancy, nothing about my delivery went as planned. I had to be induced earlier than the scheduled induction that we planned. Ravae was unavailable on that day. I had been prepped with an introduction to Ravae's back-up doula(s). My induction failed over the course of 2 days, so much of that time was just waiting. I met both of Ravae's back up doulas & they were great ladies. Ravae was with me right up until delivery, which unfortunately ended up being a c-section. Ravae explained medical terms and scenarios with me, discussed options and implications, but let me make my own decisions. She provided the exact support that I needed, when I needed it. She even supplied the extra, unexpected touches like bringing breakfast and coffee for Daddies.

Ravae came to my home and visited after baby and i were home for about a week. She is the person that noticed my son's tongue tie. None of the doctors ever mentioned it! Again, she gave me information that I used to make my decision, which was to clip the tie.

In short, I can't say enough positive things about Ravae! I got the top tier package & it was worth EVERY PENNY!
